Police detained Andrés Ricci, 58, who was in possession of the alleged murder weapon when he was taken into custody.

In a fictitious hearing on Sunday, he admitted to killing the mother of five.

He is charged with three offenses, including trafficking and illegal firearm possession, along with one count of aggravated femicide.

In 1990, Tristan became the first person from Colombia to win a world championship in road speed skating.

At the 1987 Pan American Games in Indianapolis, Indiana, she also won bronze in the relay race and gold in the 5,000-meter competition.

According to a family member, I want her to be remembered for everything she did for Colombian sports, according to the report. I beg you to respect her.

Former Colombian drug lord Joaquin Valencia was Tristán’s husband.

In 2007, after being found guilty of drug trafficking and money laundering, he was given a 40-year sentence and told to hand over $110 million.
